Anguish (Jokers' Wrath MC #3) by Bella Jewel- Review!


Title: ANGUISH (Jokers' Wrath MC, #3)
Author: Bella Jewel
Release Date: October 27, 2014



Blurb

There are a lot of things in this world that are easy to escape from. Having a son you didn't ask for isn't one of them. 

Mack is a nomad. He likes his own space and he struggles with emotion. His past is grey and his future looks about the same. That is until his ex-girlfriend dies and his son is handed over to him. A two month old baby he didn't know existed. Until now. 

His world comes crashing down around him. 

Desperate, he hires a nanny. 

Jaylah has gotten herself into some serious trouble, so when she sees the job opening for a nanny pop up, she jumps on it. Of course she's not a nanny, but she figures she can pull it off. I mean, how hard can it be? 

She's thrown into a world of diapers, hourly feedings and a whole lot of laundry. She's also introduced to the most rugged, gorgeous man she's ever had the pleasure of meeting. 

The best part, he's the baby's father. 

The worst part, he's a biker. 

Their sexual tension is huge, but he's a hard nut to crack. She'll get in, though. She makes it her mission to break through the wall Mack has built so high around himself. 

Her world is about to spiral out of control, and she's taking Mack along for the ride.


My Review:

Anguish (Jokers' Wrath MC, #3)Anguish by Bella Jewel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Jaylah got into some serious trouble in an attempt to get someone she once cared about out of trouble. She needs to get away, and make some money. She accepts the position as a full-time nanny despite having no qualifications because the pay is good and she will be living away from where her trouble can find her. Miakoda (Mack) has just found out that he is a father, and his ex-lover (the baby's mother) has died. He didn't want any of this, and can't imagine how he is going to handle his new life. The sexual tension between Jaylah and Mack is strong, but she doesn't want to mess up her employment situation, and Mack is only capable of cold sexual encounters.

I love this series, and this installment was no exception. We get to know a little about Mack in Melancholy, and know that there is a lot of pain in his past, but also that he is capable of fierce loyalty to those he considers family. Jaylah is a great character. She is who she is and doesn't hide that from anyone. She is quick to make friends, and will do anything for them once they are connected to her. She is straight forward and not afraid to stand up for what she believes in. Watching Mack experience the feeling of finally connecting with someone on a romantic level was really heart-warming. There were a lot of challenges both characters had to deal with, but when the going got tough, they were there to support one another above all else. It was great to spend some more time with characters I came to care about in the previous books- namely Ash and Santana (although I'm always glad to see Krypt and Maddox as well). I can't wait for the next installment!

Excerpt

“Are you ready for part two of this gift?” My tiger eyed me suspiciously. “And that would be—” “The fun part. You get to ride me.” Jen’s face lit up like a little kid about to go on one of those coin-operated mechanical horsey rides. Wasting no time, she tore off my boxers she had on and repositioned herself, straddling my lap with my cock impaled inside her. Gripping her hips, I bucked her hard as she rode me up and down. I hissed. Fuck, yeah! This was good. So fucking good and for both of us. Holding on to my shoulders, she got to control the pace while I got to go as deep and as hard as I could. I repeatedly hit her G-spot with each powerful thrust. She shrieked with pleasure each time I did. I gazed at her heated face. Her head arched back, she looked so impassioned, and I was mesmerized by the way the dangling earrings I’d just given her shook and shimmered. Quivering as if they were having little orgasms of their own. I was tempted to nibble her lobes but worried in my state of lust I might bite off an earring and swallow it whole. I gripped her hips tighter as she accelerated her pace. The friction and heat of her rubbing against my thick length felt so fucking amazing. “Do you like your present?” “Oh, God, yes!” she panted out. “I’m so close to coming!” “Good, baby,” I groaned. On the next deep thrust, she fell apart with a thunderous “Yes” and I could feel her throbbing all around my pulsing cock. Her body shook as I grunted out my own explosive climax and met hers full on. Spent and sweaty, we collapsed onto each other, her arms wrapping around me. We stayed in that position for several sweet minutes as we rode our orgasms out. Five minutes later, we were nestled side by side, her head resting on my chest. We were almost recovered. Now close to five, the sun had begun its disappearing act and cast a mellow amber glow. Jen traced lazy, ticklish circles on my chest. “Baby, I’ll never be able to top that birthday present.” I playfully flicked the tip of her cute upturned nose. “Don’t worry, you will.” “Do you have something in mind?” “Yeah, I do.” I was turning the big three-O. “How ‘bout a hint?” “I want to wake up to my wife.” I felt her jolt against me. “What are you saying, Blake?” “What I’m saying is that I want to marry you on the day before my birthday.” “December twentieth? Gosh, Blake. That’s only two months away.” “Jen, we’ve been engaged for over five months and it’s time to set a date. My mother has been driving me crazy.” Jen giggled. “Mine too. I keep telling her that we’ve just been too busy at work.” Which was true. Except I’d checked our calendars and had come to the conclusion that Saturday, the twentieth, would be a perfect time to get married. With Christmas around the corner, most of our SIN-TV productions would be shut down and our offices would be closed until January third—giving us an opportunity to go on a two-week honeymoon. I explained all this to Jen. She agreed. It made total sense. She rolled on top of me and gave me a hot spontaneous kiss. “Oh my God, Blake, we’re really going to get married!” The excitement in her voice was contagious. I smashed my lips against hers. “Yes, you’re going to become Mrs. Blake Burns, and tonight we’re going to break the news to our parents.” “My mother is going to be so excited!” Jen beamed. “She’s been planning our wedding forever.” I didn’t know if Jen could feel my heart skip a beat. I quietly gulped. And so had my mother. Instead of letting her know this, I urged her to take a shower with me and get ready for our dinner. The future Mrs. Blake Burns had another surprise in store.

Laywers in Love Series by N.M. Silber- Review Tour!




Synopsis 

Once upon a time two lawyers fell in love across a courtroom ...

Gabrielle Ginsberg was a public defender with plenty of nerve and Braden Pierce was an assistant district attorney with a whole lot of swagger. Gabrielle wanted Braden and Braden wanted Gabrielle.

And Cameron wanted Gabrielle.

And Marla wanted Braden.

And Cole wanted Gabrielle.

And Mrs. Mason wanted Braden.

And an anonymous letter writer wanted to keep Gabrielle and Braden apart.

Together Gabrielle and Braden discovered many important things, like which doors at the courthouse actually locked, and that desks could be useful for more than writing. They also found out that the path of love was not always smooth, and it was sometimes tread upon by some really wacky people, like a confused fanny grabber, an eighty-two year old pothead and a gentleman who threw a wine and cheese party in his pants. Could true love overcome a lack of privacy, interference by jealous rivals and the insanity of the criminal court system?

Review


The Law of Attraction (Lawyers in Love, #1)The Law of Attraction by N.M. Silber
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Gabrielle is a public defender, and Braden is a prosecutor. They often work in the same court room and quickly realize that they are both very attracted to one another. One issue is that Braden is a notorious player who is always ready to hook up, but doesn't date. Gabrielle wants Braden, but isn't interested in a one night stand with anyone. A little booze and some witty banter has them negotiating their way into the start of a relationship. Once that is taken care of, some outside issues arise.

I enjoyed this book quite a lot. The main characters are very witty as are their friends. Experiencing the sexual tension building up between Gabrielle and Braden was pretty spectacular, but not quite as spectacular as when they finally vented it! These two have some serious chemistry and while the hot stuff is really hot, the banter and intellectual connection these two find and experience was absolutely wonderful to witness. After Gabrielle and Braden connect, we see that there are other people who want relationships with either Gabrielle or Braden and are ready to cause problems for the new couple. Gabrielle is receiving mysterious threatening letters, and those who want Braden are being very clear about their desires.

From the beginning, I was completely hooked into this story. I will definitely be continuing on with this series and can't wait to read more!

Review 

The Home Court Advantage (Lawyers in Love, #2)The Home Court Advantage by N.M. Silber
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book picks up where The Law of Attraction leaves off. Gabrielle and Braden are completely in love and their lives seem to be falling into place in all the important ways. Gabrielle is still receiving mysterious messages, and the couple is obviously being stalked. Gabrielle comes up with more schemes to try and find the identity of the stalker, but now Braden is on board and by her side. They continue to deal with a variety of interesting criminal cases and criminals in court, and are passionate as ever when they can find time alone together.

I really love this couple. I honestly can't think of a thing I don't like about either one. They are funny, witty, passionate, and ready to work through any problems that arise. Their friends are smart and interesting people as well, and I loved seeing how they are coupling up as well. This series is funny, smart, sexy, and sweet with a touch of mystery. I have enjoyed it a lot and am looking forward to reading more by this author.

Review

Legal Briefs (Lawyers in Love, #3)Legal Briefs by N.M. Silber
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lilly and Adam have been enemies since they were 4 years old. Now at 27, Lilly is a lawyer working as a legal librarian (and novelist) and Adam is an attorney with the District Attorney's Office. They share many of the same friends, but their tension and irritation with one another has remained in tact. Except for the past few months there have been a coupe incidents where being in close quarters has left them experiencing more than a little sexual tension. Both are unsure what will happen if they give in to their desires.

Just when I thought I loved the first two books in this series, this one comes along and I love it even more! Lilly and Adam are just plain awesome. Both are witty, sarcastic, sexy, and guard their emotions tightly but are dying to experience something real. And their chemistry is very intense. This is one of those "duh, they are mean to each other because they like each other" stories, but it isn't cliche. The characters and story line feels fresh, and it was great to get to spend a little more time with Gabrielle, Braden, Mark, and everyone we got to know in the first two books in the series. It was fantastic to watch Lilly and Adam fall in love while not having it change their personalities or who they are. It was like their relationship just made each of them better. I've enjoyed this whole series, and this book in particular a whole lot and would highly recommend it. I will be also looking to read more by this author in the future.

Review

Legally Wed (Lawyers in Love, #3.1)Legally Wed by N.M. Silber
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Adam and Lily are gearing up to get married. They battled a childhood of lust-fuelled hatred to finally get together and now they have a whole host of new stressful issues to deal with. As wedding planning anxieties arise along with old insecurities, Adam and Lily struggle to have faith in their love for one another and the happiness they have found.

I adore this series, and I especially love Adam and Lily. They are a fantastic couple, and it was amazing to get to spend some more time with both of them. Their sexual chemistry is still very intense, and that combined with their intellectual compatibility make them of my favorite couples. It is also great to check in with other characters we have come to know and love throughout this series, and hopefully soon we will get Mark's story. I highly recommend this series and can't wait for more!

Suddenly, all the feelings that burned so intensely are reignited and she finds herself becoming quickly entangled with her enigmatic lover. The passion is incredible, unforgettable, unbelievable, but Jaron Rose is not all that he seemsóhe wears more than one disguise and he is hiding a big secret.

Billie is about to find out what that is.
 


My Review: 

MasqueradeMasquerade by Georgia Le Carre
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Billie Black is a woman who thought she knew what she wanted. One passionate night with a stranger has her reconsidering her sexuality and realizing that not only can she be attracted to a man, but she can also enjoy giving up the control she has always sought. He didn't call her afterwards, but a month later he shows up and makes it clear that he isn't going away this time. He is keeping some pretty huge secrets, but as they spend more time together both realize they are probably going to want each other no matter what.

The physical chemistry between Billie and Jaron is pretty intense. They are definitely sexually compatible no matter what else they may struggle with. It was definitely frustrating not knowing what Jaron was hiding, and watching Billie feel helpless in the face of her attraction to him. Billie has some issues, but what is great is that she is unapologetic about who she is and what she wants. She is herself first and foremost and she isn't about to be anyone else. This story is filled with a lot of raw intense sex. The story stays engaging throughout, and watching Billie and Jaron's relationship grow and evolve was rewarding.

Reminiscence by Sara V. Zook- Cover Reveal

Cover Reveal


Reminiscence Cover


Book Title: Reminiscence 
Author: Sara V. Zook 
Genre: Paranormal YA 
Release Date: November 2014 


Synopsis

  Abuse. Torment. Saint’s undying love for her. A witch—or four. The world’s most powerful spell. The creation of the unnatural. Her undying love for Draco. A war is brewing between the Light, the Dark and the Unknown. In the midst of it all stands Sarenah. Her memories have returned as she rewinds the past in order to move forward with her future so she can reclaim what, or who, belongs only to her, but will she be able to accept the disturbing secrets that go along with the reminiscence?

  excerpt

 In the midst of dragging trees, I saw Sarenah sitting on the back porch, her dress hiked up around her thighs from the heat as she was thumbing through a book. She wasn’t even acknowledging the fact that I was there, nor did she care that I could see her bare legs. She was being totally inappropriate and rude at the same time … and I liked it. I felt intrigued to my very core, so much that I had to go over and say something to her. “Hey,” I mumbled. Without looking up, she reiterated, “Hey.” My frustration grew as I clenched my fingers into my palms. “Is that book so interesting that you can’t even talk to me?” That had gotten her attention. She slammed the book shut and stood up, the dress falling back down around her ankles. “Are you so interesting that I can’t even read my book?” Her dark eyes were wild and she was glaring at me as if she wanted me to spontaneously combust. “Don’t you have a job to do? Look at this mess.” Her eyes moved to the yard. “All of these branches everywhere. My uncle will have your hide.” She was so angry. I couldn’t help myself. I wiped the sweat from my brow with the back of my hand and busted out laughing. Sarenah’s hands moved to her hips. I thought she was about to hit me. I threw up hands up in defense. “I’m …” The laughter got the best of me again. “I’m sorry, Sarenah.” I flashed her an apologetic grin. “It’s just, I think this is the first time I’ve ever heard you talk so much and you’re spatting off at me like some crazy person.” Her gaze had softened then. She bit her bottom lip so she wouldn’t crack a smile herself. “A crazy person, huh?” I nodded, stopping to really get a good look at Sarenah’s face, her stunning features and the way her dark eyes popped out in a terrific way. This was Rebecca’s sister? I had been missing out. Sarenah’s strange ways evaporated into enticement before me. I spent the rest of the evening listening to Sarenah talk as I took all of it in. The tree branches were still scattered all over the yard, but I doubted her uncle would be back anytime soon to discover the mess. Everyone knew he lived at the saloon. She talked mostly about her parents. She had a deep ache from the loss inside of her. She was in a great deal of pain that I felt my own heart hurting along with hers, for her. I found myself wrapping my arm around her and her actually letting me get away with it, but I wasn’t in it to try to make a move. I found myself wanting to comfort Sarenah, tell her everything was going to be okay. I wanted her to trust me and continue to confide in me. She leaned her head against my shoulder, being content to be there with me. It felt incredible as if I had been able to tame her so easily. She was feisty but now so serene. I could’ve lived in that moment forever and been completely content to just be lucky enough to be near her, to smell the flower fragrance in her hair as it fell down across my arm. I rubbed her shoulder with my fingertips. She started humming, the sound making the chaos within me only increase. It was in that moment that I had leaned over and my lips found hers. It had been brief but magnificent, and I was wondering if my mind was ever going to be the same.
