“You ever broken the law before this, Eden?”

I expected a quick and unequivocal no, but it didn’t come as fast as I thought it would.

“I don’t think so. I mean, I’m sure I have by accident sometime. I’ve jaywalked. But I’m not some kind of criminal.”

Well, that makes one of us, I thought.

My anger from earlier started to fade and be replaced by the heat of the knowledge that Eden’s naked tits were only inches from my chest, separated by water I could see right through. Last time I’d seen them under her pink bra, she’d been too fucked up for me to take advantage . . . but tonight she was completely sober.

I raised my gaze from her chest, expecting her cheeks to be red when she realized I was staring at her nipples, but she wasn’t watching my face. She was staring down at my body.

“Like what you see?”

That got her attention.

Eden jerked her head up to meet my eyes, and the blush colored her skin like I’d timed it.

“You’re . . . big.”

A booming laugh broke free from my throat at her unexpected response, and her cheeks flamed even brighter.

“No, that’s not what I meant. I mean . . . everywhere. Not just, in the . . .” She looked down, then jerked her gaze back to mine. “I’m going to shut up now.”

That kind of awkward and fumbling response couldn’t be faked, and protectiveness rose in me again. Eden was no con artist. She was a girl who couldn’t even say the word cock without turning red.

“Ain’t no shame in my game.”

She reached out a hand and covered my lips with her fingers. “Stop. You’re just making it worse. I wasn’t checking out your . . . package. I mean, I did before you got in the pool, but that’s only because I thought you’d have underwear on because who doesn’t wear underwear?” The babbling continued, and so did my laughter.

Hell, I hadn’t laughed this much since Delilah had given in to a customer’s request and tattooed a flexing veined eggplant cartoon on a client so he could send pictures of it instead of dick pics.

Eden pulled her hand back and covered her face. “I’m going to stop talking now. I seriously can’t be trusted to say anything that’s not completely humiliating when you’re standing this close to me naked.”

“I disagree, and since I’m not ready to get out and put my clothes on, you’re going to have to deal with it.”

She mumbled something under her breath.

“Come again?”

Eden pressed her lips together for a beat before saying, “I don’t know how to deal with it. This isn’t something I’ve ever dealt with before.”

A crazy thought popped into my brain. “Are you a virgin?”

If there was a red brighter than fire engine, that was the color of Eden’s cheeks. “No! Of course not. Really. I’ve touched a dick before. I mean, just the one, but it still counts. Well, I didn’t really touch it. Except, you know, inside me. Oh my God, I’m just going to shut up now.”

Realization dawned on me as her babbled protest silenced. “You’ve had sex with one guy? Once? How old are you?”

Eden turned to bolt, but instead smashed her tits into my arm. I stepped close enough so that only an inch of water separated us.

Her gaze went skyward. “This is so humiliating.”

That’s where she and I had differing opinions. “Why? Because you haven’t fucked every guy you’ve ever met? What’s wrong with that?”

Eden’s gaze snapped down to mine and her brows drew into slashes. “Hey, whoa now. You can toss that double-standard crap right in the trash. What if I had screwed every guy I ever met? Would that make me less of a person? I mean, it’s not like you probably haven’t been with dozens and dozens of women. I’m not judging you. Except for maybe that Kitty girl. I mean, really? You’ve got to have some standards.”

My laughter boomed out again across the courtyard. “Cupcake, just because I can get most any pussy I want, doesn’t mean I do it.”

“Still, double standards are—”

When she started on another tirade, I decided to silence her the best way I knew how.

I leaned down and covered her lips with mine.


  Review by Iza

"You wanna get dirty in NOLA, cupcake?"

I'm not kidding when I say Meghan March knows the way to my heart with the men she writes. Especially the guys from the Beneath series
Move over Lord and Rix, there's a new guy  in my heart now and his name's Bishop. He's big, he's bad and bearded. Perfect.

"You're gonna ride my beard until I tell you to stop." Holy. Hell."

But I not only fell for Bishop, but for Eden too. I think we all have a little bit of Eden in us, some more than others, but it's there. She's there. You'll understand this better after you read the book. And believe me, you'll want to read it. Why? Because Meghan March nails it. We not only get to learn more about the mysterious Bishop, but see more of the other characters we've grown to love so much. We get a glimpse of what's going on after their HEA starts and I loved it! 
It's your typical Meghan March book, filled with some funny moments, ones that make you swoon and melt, while others make you fan yourself because Bishop. Enough said. 
The fact that two worlds collide is just a bonus! Again, you'll get it after you read the book. I'm not going to spoil it for you. It's all worth it, you'll see. 
It's another favorite of mine, it made the top reads of 2016 list, of course, and I can't wait for more, though it'll be bittersweet and I'm sure I'm going to cry because it'll be the last book in the series. 
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book, which I'm going to rate 5 stars.     

"You're mine. I don't have much, but what's mine I keep. I protect. I don't ever let it go."

Review The Fractured Heart, Second Circle Tattoos series by Scarlett Cole

Title: The Fractured Heart
Author: Scarlett Cole
Series: Second Circle Tattoos
Release Date: January 5th 2016


All things, when placed under pressure, eventually break or leave a mark.

Tattoo artist Brody "Cujo" Matthews knows how to keep things simple. In life and in love. Abandoned as a child by a mother who refused to stick around to raise three boys she didn't want, he's intent on staying clear of complicated women. The only things complicated in Cujo’s life are the killer tattoos he designs and inks. That all changes when he’s asked to help organize his best friend Trent's engagement party, which means working with Trent's fiancée's best friend, Drea, the definition of high maintenance and sizzling curves. And the one woman he doesn’t want to walk away from.

Andrea "Drea" Caron is broke and tired. After years of caring for her ailing mom, she's at the end of her rope trying to manage the piling medical bills, two jobs, and a life placed on hold. She certainly doesn’t need the added frustration of a sexy playboy tattoo artist messing up her best friend’s engagement party or her carefully balanced life. But when Drea witnesses the abduction of a woman from the café she works at, she can’t help but turn to Cujo who’s determined to prove to Drea that he’s someone she can count on forever…but as they attempt to bring the truth to light, someone is working to bring that forever to a sudden, deadly halt.

Review by Iza

Drea and Brody can't stand each other; the last thing they want is to be in the same room with one another, but fate has different plans for them when they're thrown together to plan a wedding. Brody is the best man, Drea is the maid of honor. They have to learn how to work with each other, in order to get things done.  
Hard? Very. 
They're very different - or so they think. Drea is a small control freak - but due to the things she's been through and is still going through, it's understandable - while Brody is a go-with-the-flow guy. 
Clash of the titans? Definitely.
But Drea isn't the only one that's had it tough. I love that Ms. Cole writes about real-life situations and scenarios; things you can imagine happening in our day-to-day lives. Yes, it's fiction and the angst and drama prove it, but these characters - along with the others in the series - are well-developed and constructed in a way that makes it all too real.
My heart ached for them, broke, I just about wanted to strangle them, at one point, but it's not easy when you're broken and bruised on the inside. 
Do they make it work, in the end? Of course. Is Brody one of my faves? Yes, he is. Is he a guy I'd fall for in real life? Hell yes!
So, if you haven't read this one already, do it. You're missing out. I still have one book left to read in the series - as a matter of fact, it's book one - but I'm savoring them because this series ended. *pout*
5 stars.

Review Bang Gang by Jade West

Title: Bang Gang
Author: Jade West
Series: Standalone
Release Date: September 30th 2016


It’s one thing knowing your ex-boyfriend is a bit of a player, but it’s another thing altogether to find out he’s pimping himself out to anyone who’ll pay good money for it.

Not just himself, either. That would be far too regular for Darren Trent.

Darren Trent – my teenage sweetheart and father to my two young girls – is not just whoring himself out. Oh no. Darren Trent pimps himself out alongside four of his mechanic friends – all of them at the same time.

Five hot, sweaty mechanics at your service.

They call themselves the Bang Gang… you can imagine.

In a village our size I should keep my head down and hope the scandal blows over before the girls or my poor old Nanna catch wind of it.

Only it’s not blowing over. Far from it. It seems every woman in the village wants themselves a five-mechanic sandwich.

They make no qualms about it, either. Just rock on up to my café counter and ask how they can book themselves in for a Bang Gang special. Like I would know.

I definitely wouldn’t know. I hardly even know Darren Trent anymore. We split up a lifetime ago.

I definitely don’t think about him late at night. Don’t think about five mechanics and me as much as every other woman in this village.

And even if I did, I wouldn’t act on it. I wouldn’t draw the money from my savings account and have a go for myself.

And even if I did that, I definitely, definitely wouldn’t fall for him. Not again. Not after everything we went through. Not after splitting up the first time nearly brought me to my knees.

Not after settling into a decent routine, the girls and me, with no drama, no heartbreak, no crazy passions to rock the calm little boat we’re sailing on.

I mean, who would be stupid enough to risk all that over a hot, sweaty, oily bit of rough like Darren Trent?

Review by Iza

I loved it. I was intrigued and very curious after reading the blurb, but still hesitant because I've never read books by this author before. It could go either way - I actually expected to not like it, to be honest. I love smut just like the next person, but it's not always written in a good way, in a hot way.

Well, no worries here, Jade West nailed it. She managed to do something not many can: she combined the dirty, the smutty with the feels. That's the big surprise that had me glued to this book, not the dirty scenes - okay, I loved those too, they were written in a really good way - but the major feels the story gave me!

As you've gathered from the blurb, the hero's a mechanic-turned-gigolo, along with his work mates. The heroine is his ex and mother of his two daughters - by the way, I love those girls! They have such strong personalities.

It takes a while - and some really hot scenes - for the main characters to reconnect and find their way back to each other. It's not an easy road - especially when there's a character that keeps interfering - but it's so worth it. No major drama, just the right amount. I think it's safe to say this book is one of the best I've read this year and I am keeping my fingers crossed for a book with two other characters that will get their HEA.

5 stars. No buts about it, just like that. It was really, really good.

Author Bio

Jade has increasingly little to say about herself as time goes on, other than the fact she is an author, but she’s plenty happy with this. Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she’s ever wanted.
Jade is as dirty as you’d expect from her novels, and talking smut makes her smile.
She lives in the Herefordshire countryside with a couple of hounds and a guy who’s able to cope with her inherent weirdness.
She has a red living room, decorated with far more zebra print than most people could bear, and fights a constant battle with her addiction to Coca-Cola.

Release Blitz + Review Spied by J.M. Miller

Title: Spied
Author: J.M. Miller
Genre: Romantic Comedy Standalone
Release Date: October 20, 2016


Gia Keats works both sides of love’s dirty business. Some days are spent at Silhouette Bridal Boutique, helping brides prepare for their delusional walk to happily ever after. Other days she clocks hours for Duplicity, spying on cheaters and crushing their plans for future trysts. The two jobs are a solid reminder to ignore the dead thing inside her chest and to stay out of love’s sight. She never expected to get caught.

Love is also pretty far down on Mark Foster’s priority list. The closest thing he’s had to a relationship was two nights with a hottie tourist looking for an unforgettable vacation bang. But after he catches a gorgeous local spying on a public make-out session, his sour view of long-term turns a little sweet. He’ll even ignore the odd coincidences that follow her for a taste of the L word.
Falling for Mark’s charm would be easier than choosing a single item from a dessert menu, but Gia knows love’s never that simple. When an anonymous Duplicity client hires her to target a Silhouette bride and groom, both sides of the business collide.  And Mark’s ties to the bride are the icing on the screwed up cake.

Review by Iza

I can't tell you how much I loved this book! It was the BEST surprise! I've read two other books by Ms. Miller and they were so different! I loved those, too but this hit the spot, getting me out of a funk/hangover.
Our heroine, Gia, has been jaded, so she decided to help others from said heartache by opening up her very own business. It kind of butted heads with her other job, where she encountered people that were in love and were preparing to tie the knot. 
Our hero, Mark, stumbles upon her in a funny scenario, then they meet again and poor guy has his work cut out for him, trying to convince Gia there is a happy-ever-after for her, as well.
This book was so funny and sweet and hot! I was melting one moment, swooning the other then fanning myself. These two get into all sorts of trouble together. 
 The conclusion to my review is that you have to read this book, you have to meet my new book boyfriend, Mark. Because believe me, you'll want a Mark too. As a matter of fact, where's my Mark?

"I still couldn't process what exactly was happening. He was mad... but he brought me cookies?"

Like seriously, where's my Mark? This book shall be reread many times, I'm sure of that. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
